Transportation liability is a multidisciplinary field in which transportation accidents or cargo theft/damage are examined for liability, or legal responsibility. When vehicular accidents occur, liability must be assigned in order to sort out which individual, company, and/or insurance company is responsible for covering the damages caused by the accident. These include cases involving minor accidents that cause minor, if any, personal injury, as well as more severe accidents that may cause catastrophic personal injury and wrongful death. This also includes cases where cargo or other property was stolen, damaged, or delayed.
Vehicular liability cases can be highly complex and multifaceted, and often involve many different elements and impacted parties. This means that it is absolutely essential to find the right attorney or law firm to handle these cases. Specifically, when facing a transportation liability case, you need legal representation with a wide array of skills, a solid grounding in several sub-specialties of law, and many different tools and resources.
At Citron & Citron, we have those skills, that knowledge, and those tools and resources. Our experienced, erudite transportation liability attorneys thoroughly and meticulously examine accidents from every possible angle. We are active rather than passive investigators. This means that we will do the legwork, the creative thinking, and the doggedly determined fine-tooth-comb analysis of every vehicular liability case we take on.
One of our specialty areas is representing transportation carriers in liability cases. Traditionally, transportation carriers were always assumed liable for their freight as well as their drivers and their actions on the road. This meant that they were assumed to be responsible whenever there was a question of liability about an accident or cargo theft/damage.
This has changed with time. Over the years, there have been shifts in transportation regulations and procedures as well as both state and federal laws. These changes have not voided transportation carriers of responsibility. However, responsibility and legal liability are now divided over a wider group of potential parties, including but not limited to transportation carrier agencies. Transportation contracts are now worked out among many different types of companies and contractors. Liability that may have once been held exclusively by a transportation carrier may now be held jointly with, for example, manufacturers, warehouses, reception facilities, suppliers, processors, and shippers. Transportation carriers are only one among a group of participants in transportation contracts. Why should they be solely liable when something goes wrong?

Who Is Responsible For Transportation Liability?
Transportation procedures and regulations are continually evolving and changing. Years ago, transportation carriers were responsible for their freight and actions on the road. While the latter is still true, the responsibility for freight, cargo, equipment, and the carrier itself may not fall on the shoulders of the initial transportation agency. Today, many parties are involved in the comings and goings of transportation. Contracts are often negotiated amongst suppliers, manufacturers, shippers, receivers, drivers, and so forth. Therefore, when an incident occurs, it is important to consider all possibilities and the parties involved. At first, it may not be clear who the responsible party is in a transportation incident case. That is why it is crucial to seek a transportation liability attorney who specializes in such cases. An expert transportation liability attorney can identify liability and craft a solid defense.
Since there are various parties involved throughout the transportation process, it is often necessary to enlist the assistance of experts. At Citron & Citron, we rely on expert knowledge, whether it is found in-house or through a trusted professional. Bringing on experts strengthens the cases we represent. They can offer viable solutions and options that effectively and efficiently help mitigate the costs and matter at hand.
